In ancient times, an aspiring spiritual seeker had to climb high mountains, cross raging rivers, navigate through dense thick forests and face numerous life threatening situations in order to have access to higher knowledge. Those who followed their spiritual calling eventually, often after very many years, were able to find their way to the doorway into a mystery school, a temple or enter into the presence of a spiritual teacher.
At this point a spiritual aspirant would undergo multiple tests set out by a spiritual teacher, which were designed to challenge and test the student’s consciousness and ascertain their commitment to the spiritual path. If the aspirant was able to pass through the tests, they would embark on a very long and very arduous journey of self-discipline and soul development under the guidance of a spiritual teacher. An aspirant would undertake a long series of rites of passage designed to gradually eliminate the dross from their consciousness and to gradually turn homo sapiens, natural human into homo spiritualis, spiritual human and ultimately into the perfected human homo deus, the god man or god woman. The journey was very slow, taking many decades and often many lifetimes, which is a non-linear pathway to self-mastery and enlightenment.
In the Aquarian Age, each person has a phenomenal opportunity to acquire the necessary self-discipline and to experience soul development while making spiritual progress at a speed that has never been hitherto possible. This opportunity is the spiritual pathway made available exclusively through the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® programs.
Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® - The Mystery School of the Goddess, provides a proven spiritual and evolutionary pathway with a sequential series of ancient rites of passage and self-initiations that enable a person to experience and acquire exponentially higher states of consciousness at a speed that is more rapid than ever before. These series of rites of passage can be undertaken multiple times and in any order to exponentially accelerate one’s learning and spiritual development.
The Medicine Woman pathway is the magical high road of the Goddess, the ageless path of return back to oneness, self-mastery and enlightenment. Medicine Woman teachings are the ancient teachings of the House of the Bee, the original high mystery teachings of the Goddess, the Divine Feminine. These teachings like nature itself have a non-linear expression. This means each Medicine Woman program can be undertaken multiple times and in any order. By working with the Medicine Woman programs the opportunity is there for you to experience exponential spiritual and evolutionary growth and attain infinitely higher levels of consciousness and awareness.

First Light Porta Alchémica® alchemical elixirs are preserved with small amounts of brandy. At this stage it is not possible to manufacture our products to their consistently high standard without the use of alcohol. If you are sensitive to alcohol, First Light Porta Alchémica® alchemical elixirs can be ‘flashed’ by pouring just-off-the-boil water onto them, to effectively evaporate the alcohol content. Choosing to ingest First Light Porta Alchémica® alchemical elixirs is a personal choice and each individual's personal responsibility.

Can I do more than one Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® program at a time?
Due to the considerable logistical demands and requirements inherent in each Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® program we recommend that a person only enrol for one course at a time. Each of the programs have a different focus and objective within consciousness and there is a time honoured progression of development used in true mystery schools to ensure that safe, structured, balanced and rapid spiritual development unfolds. Whilst this is our recommendation The Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® understands that each person is a unique individual with their own requirements and capacities. Each student is the best judge as to how they choose to work with the training programs we provide. It is each student’s responsibility to practice self-monitoring and to take full accountability for their own physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing throughout the duration of their studies.
